The NEMO Galaxi 2P tent is a durable, lightweight 3-season shelter offering a great feature-set for first-time and budget-minded backpackers and campers. A roomy interior, two large doors, good ventilation and a host of unique included features make the Galaxi 2P sure to please on your next backcountry adventure.
Intended to house up to two people, the Galaxi 2P offers 32 square feet of interior space. The full coverage rainfly creates two integrated vestibules to provide weather-protected, covered storage space adding up to 22 square feet. An interior mesh Light Pocket is included with the Galaxi 2P, serving as an out-of-the-way location to stow a headlamp or flashlight to provide diffuse light to the entire tent space at night. MagTie magnetic door tiebacks are also included to make it quick and easy to roll the tent door back for ventilation or views to the outside.
A one-piece 9 mm hubbed aluminum pole set provides the Galaxi 2P with strong support and makes setup a snap. The freestanding design enables you to pitch the tent and then move it around your chosen campsite to find the optimal rock and root-free position for your Galaxi 2P.
Mesh panels in the walls and ceiling of the Galaxi 2P allow air to circulate and combat condensation. The weatherproof 70D treated nylon floor combines with the rainfly to protect the interior of the Galaxi 2P from the elements.
Along with the free MagTies and Light Pocket, a drawstring stuff sack, guy-out cord, stakes, and a repair kit are included. Further adding value, a custom-fit footprint rounds-out the list of included accessories to protect the floor of your NEMO Galaxi 2P tent from sharp objects, mud and ground water. The Galaxi 2P's design also offers a bare bones "On the Fly" setup option; if you really want to travel light, leave the tent body at home and use the rainfly alone with the provided footprint for a tarp-style configuration.

- Great ventilation, easy to set up once you know what you are doing
Likes: Air flow is nice, the vestibules are convenient. Setup is a breeze once you know what you are doing.
Dislikes: Slightly less headspace than I would like, but I could have gone for something like the Losi if that was really a major concern. Despite that, I can still sit on my Helinox swivel in the middle of my tent to lazily unpack gear.
